  Publisher:  琉璃社区 Publishing

In Flight of the Griffons, the sequel to The Dread Crew: Pirates of the Backwoods, we follow young Missy Bullseye as she ventures from her pirate crew鈥檚 adopted Nova Scotian home base to begin probationary work terms along the road to union-certified junking. From the deep northern woods of Ontario and Quebec to the great western prairies, Missy wanders far on a secret mission鈥攐ne that turns her against her own.

While tracking and spying on a blacklisted crew, Missy encounters mechanical moths, an outlawed tilt-rotor airship, a mega-pipeline, and the unexpected sound of grassland drums. What she discovers along the way is that heroes can look like villains, crimes can look like profit, and heights aren鈥檛 so bad鈥攁s long as a true-hearted pirate is holding the rope. Includes 15 full-page illustrations from artist Sydney Smith.
